KIRKUS REVIEW

This recall of men and lands seen and known during World War II is made by an American who served with the British, who writes with such self-effacement that at times one queries his own position in the line-up. He is a pleasant companion, at any rate, as he points out the sight in the Middle East; describes the valor and heartbreak of men at war; mulls over the problems of why Germans acted as they did and what next, or of the Labor Government in England, in the European aftermath. Egypt, Khartoum, Kenya, Beirut, Jerusalem, Greece, Italy, Malta, Algiers, Marrakech, England, Germany, Vienna, Ceylon, Malaya, Scotland provide food for socio-economic, religious, political ideas, but the essence of the book is a generous sentiment for man and other creatures rather than in such ideas. Thoughtful and sometimes appealing sketches, not highly organized but easy of approach.
